Last thing swapped.

Traded my Guy Cotton derby jacket for a Barbour quilted International jacket...Toasty for the winter.

Got some very nice details - 4 pockets, 1 is slanted, Quited...YKK bottom zip with the traditional Barbour branded circular zip, Throat buckle.

Happy days.

The nights are getting colder.

Wake up in the morning its dark, Go home from work and its dark, Its also getting colder which means its time to think about what to wear on your head to the match/down to the local pub..
